Elegy, a long poetic tradition. Generally a lamenting song of grieving for the deceased subject. What are the existential ramifications of this mode of writing? What new types of being does this allow for the dead? What of the role of the creator of this new phase of being? Join facilitator Jeremy Springsteed, co-founder of the Breadline reading series. Bring your own elegy, hear other elegies, bring unrelated new work for gentle critique or come just to be in the engaging company of other writers.
Your donation of $5 helps SPLAB put on special events and continue programming. Please bring 8 copies of the work you plan to read. If you do not bring copies, they are available for 10c.
